Ms .45 (1981)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

8 / 10
Talk about having a bad day... a timid, mute woman is unfortunately raped not once but twice by two different guys on her way home from work. After killing her second attacker, she starts carrying around a gun with her to defend herself and gets a taste for vengeance and eventually turns into the ultimate, man-hating, feminazi and begins mowing down innocent men.

You could say that this is pretty much a female version of Death Wish with a much more exploitative edge to it. Ms .45 is an impressive movie when you consider many of its main cast members had not acted in any prior movies including the lead actress, Zoe Lund. The way the movie is shot along with its zany type of music is quite reminiscent of Italian horror.

There's a couple of small scares for some, but most importantly it will appease fans of exploitation cinema.
